SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A pre-new year’s party organized for about 800 high school students at a San Francisco hotel Friday night ended in two arrests and two doused with pepper spray, a San Francisco police spokesman said.
Police were called to the InterContinental San Francisco hotel ballroom at 888 Howard St., around 10:30 p.m. to assist hotel management after several fights broke out, San Francisco police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.
The party was organized by Freakquency SF. The organizations Facebook page claims to throw ‘the hottest parties for high school kids ages 14-18 all through the Bay Area.’
Management tried to shut down the event by turning on the lights, but the event’s DJ tried to persuade attendees to stay and continue the party, Shyy said.
When police arrived they escorted partiers out of the hotel.
Two attendees were arrested on unspecified misdemeanor charges, Shyy said, and two others were pepper sprayed.
No other injuries were reported at the event.
The party ended shortly before midnight and all guests had left the area, Shyy said.
